Strong tea base sweetened by the coconut with a great mango flavor. Not much else to say, but this was the perfect afternoon cuppa!

Yes yes Yes!
You can taste the coconut and nilgiri on the first sip, then the mango flavour in the back of your mouth.
Absolutely delightful. Will have again tomorrow

This one has a VERY full flavor profile so if you don’t like that sort of thing, then I would avoid this one. The primary flavor is mango, but the coconut provides a strong backdrop. The finish is all coconut. The Niligiri black tea is not bitter or astringent. This one makes a very nice iced tea. It didn’t rate higher with me as the flavors are not most natural tasting. However, I would buy this.

I got this ages and ages ago. Stunningly, SerendipiTea still carries it. I thought for sure it would be off the rotation by now just given the number of years I’ve had it. The last Steepster note on this tea was 6 years ago.

In the tin it smells coconutty, mangoey, cookie like. After steeping there’s a citrus edge as well which is weird since there’s nothing citrus in the ingredients.

I was prepared for this to be another tropical tea that basically devolves into coconut. That it doesn’t is a pleasant surprise! There’s a very obvious and discernible mango here and the coconut, at least in this cup, is more in the background. But it does a nice job there of keeping the tea from becoming too sharp. It provides a natural sweetness that tamps down any acidic notes that could detract from the flavor.

It’s been a long time since I had a mango black tea, and I can’t remember being overly impressed by any — though it’s not beyond the realm of possibility. I should go back and look at my notes to see what I thought of the others I’ve tasted. But that wouldn’t be an apples to apples comparison unless they also had coconut and didn’t also have pineapple, which is always the challenge — introduce pineapple into the mix and everything is either pineapple or coconut. Everything else gets lost.

Not so here. Eureka!

I like this one when I am yearning for chocolate or something desserty…I am normally a lighter tea drinker (greens specifically) so I was surprised to add this to my rotation but I really like it
